August meetup - Coffee morning at British Film Institute, Southbank

Hello all,


Our usual Sunday morning get-together for the August meetup. We'll be there from 11am. (Benugo Bar is the bar/cafe towards the back of the BFI building, near to the ticket office)

If Benugo Bar is too busy, we can head over to the Royal Festival Hall. If you can't find us please call/text me on[masked] :)


For those who don't yet know the format...

We'd like to use this time for several things: to talk about the different aspects of documentaries and film making; to bounce ideas off each other; to get others involved in your projects; to get feedback on your own work and to act as a general forum and an informal and social support network. We'd like to create a relaxed environment in which to do this.

If you intend to come to the meetup, please change your RSVP to 'yes' then if you would like to participate, please send me a short email about what you'd like to get out of the meeting.

For example, tell me briefly about a project you're working on and who you're looking for to work with. Or tell me if you're looking to get involved in someone else's project in some way. Or perhaps you're just curious and want to come along.

A day or two before the meetup, I'll send an e-mail around to those who are coming with all the details. That way hopefully you won't leave the meetup having not spoken to someone you wish you had!

(Those who have already sent me their blurb and are coming along again, no need to forward it again, unless you would like to change it!)


See you there!

    Good as ever. Well worth it for anyone interested in making films and making contacts.

    Hi it's my first meetup for docus, do I still need to prep or can I just rock up and absorb information?

    Also, I run an indie filmmaking meetup myself and we're meeting at the BFI at 1pm - do you think we will be done by then?
